ABOUT THE FYRU

The Florida Youth Rugby Union was formed in 2007 to promote and facilitate the development, growth and enjoyment of Rugby for Youth and High School athletes across Florida.

Like rugby in the rest of the United States, Youth and High School rugby has seen significant growth in Florida. We have teams from as far North as Jacksonville, South to Miami and West to Niceville. The FYRU is proud to work in partnership with both USA Rugby and the Florida Rugby Union to achieve achieve our goal of 5,000 registered rugby players by 2020.
